‘Agriculture should be given top priority’

Top-priority should be given to agricultural development activities, but the government has kept it at 4th place, as its main objective is power-generation. This has directly influenced the deterioration of agricultural activities, Provincial Councillor and All Ceylon Farmer Federation Chairman Namal Karunarathna said.

He said that by the recent Cabinet reshuffle, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe took over another portfolio called Law and Order and Prison Reforms Minister.

Therefore, he could catch the former Central Bank governor easily, as he is currently in Singapore. At present, all thieves are at large.

All Ceylon Farmer Alliance Treasurer Susantha Kumara Navarathna, All Ceylon Farmer Alliance members T. D. Sarath and Upali Jayasingha spoke.
